transit of venus 2012

the last transit of venus in our lifetimes was observed this morning in New Zealand - Venus appeared as a small dark dot passing in front of the sun. Some images of the event to share with you care of AUT university from this chilly winter's morning....

This exceedingly rare astronomical event won’t happen again until December 11, 2117!  So we can imagine this must be an exciting time for astrological enthusiasts around the world...
 happy venus transit love from the team @ WE'AR
